I would like to thank the author for his interest in our case report.  I would like to reply on the author's comments:
- We have already classified our case as a non-ischemic central retinal vein occlusion in a previous reply. 
- In this case, we applied a focal scatter of macular argon laser which is not typically by definition a "macular grid". This is the reason we described it as focal laser treatment.
- In our case, argon laser treatment resulted in complete resolution of macular oedema. This complete resolution of macular oedema resulted in improvement of visual acuity from 6/12 to 6/6.
- This was the first time that we have tried macular laser treatment in such a case and the quick resolution of the patient's macular oedema and restoration of vision to 6/6 was in favor of our conclusion.
